Capsol Technologies ASA announced that the third CapsolGo, a mobile carbon capture demonstration unit, is installed at Växjö Energi AB's Sandvik biomass plant in Växjö, Sweden. The demonstration unit will commence operations in June as part of a rental agreement with partner Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW). The campaign aims to demonstrate the full carbon capture solution, including CO2 capture and liquefaction, providing valuable data for the optimization of a potential full-scale capture plant.

A full-scale plant could reduce emissions by approximately 260,000 tons of CO2 each year, starting in 2028. Carbon capture is particularly attractive at biomass plants as they can generate revenue from negative emissions credits. CapsolGo is an easy and affordable way for large-scale CO2-emitters and EPC companies to demonstrate and verify the effectiveness of Capsol's Hot Potassium Carbonate (HPC) technology.

The key advantage of Capsol's technology for biomass plants is the low energy use and ability to generate additional high-grade district heating energy. Further, the potassium carbonate solvent is safe and non-toxic, making the solution fit for residential areas. The campaign at the Sandvik plant will be delivered as-a-service with a flexible testing and validation program, verifying the performance of Capsols' carbon capture technology on the Sandvik biomass plant's flue gas.
